Fantasy Friday ~ A Summer Solstice, Stunningly Hot, Desert Wedding at a Succulent Sanctuary

When you exchange vows at a succulent sanctuary (um, how cool is that?!!), it's only fitting that succulents line the dinner table, right? And, seriously, look how gorgeous they are!! OMG! I'm such a sucker for succulents! Anyway, bridey, I love everything about Emily and Rob's wedding. The succulents, the trip down the hacienda stairs to the aisle, the DIY elements and dinner at the FAB French restaurant, Le Valluris. I'm like a broken record when I say that your wedding day should completely encapsulate who you are as a couple, and obviously, that means different elements for each couple.

Emily and Rob certainly succeeded in capturing their nuptial spirit (Whoa... just go with it... No, I'm not high, just intoxicated by this lovely wedding...). Between the desert heat, the sanctuary and the La Vallauris, I'd say I have a pretty good feel of who they are as a couple even without ever having met them. So, bridey, go meet Emily and Rob and be inspired!

LOVE Emily's dress!! So FAB and delicious!I'm a 'lil bit obsessed with the bouquet... Fans were definitely necessary. The temperature topped out at 108 degrees!!! OMG!Yup! Emily is fabulous barefoot bride! Look down!LOVE how they are looking at each other!Gotta put some sneakers on to wander around the Palm Springs desert!Entirely breathtaking!Succulent place cards/favors... I mean...

Thank you Emily and Rob for sharing your fantastically awesome HOT wedding day with BB!
